wxman (1834) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Pours a clear amber/orange with a so-so off white head. Aroma is malty and marzen-like, along with a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered biscuits, spices, minimal hops and malt liquor. Alcohol warmth noted after the swallow. Not perfect, but interesting and quite good.

Aggiebob (1208) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber orange color with an small head. Malty bread dough aroma with a caramel, toffee and some bourbon flavorings. It is big beer and very good.

nealblind (1940) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 25, 2015
bright orange brown pour some cream top. Aroma ozone, caramel, boubon glazed bananas. Tastes big malt but also has light tingly carb and bitter hop balance. Also tried a bottle from 2013. It aged to be overly sweet and malty. Drink this one fresh and enjoy a doppelbock about as good as you can get.

Without a doubt, my favorite beer of all time. It’s hard to get, as Capital only offers it around August and September of each year. Fortunately, I’m only about 50 miles away from the brewery, so I can usually find it during that period. I love beers that set the mood for the season. This one certainly does that. I’m not sure what it is, but sitting around a campfire with a few of these as the leaves are starting to fall in autumn is what life is all about. It’s a big beer. If you plan on drinking quite a few of them, make sure you have a "designated carrier" that can drag you into the tent or camper at the end of the session. And try not to fall into the campfire.
